Revels Nordic Story Time

Bring your kid(s) to hear Revelers read Nordic stories!



Join us as we explore the magical world of Nordic children’s literature. We’ll journey through books old and new, from different Nordic countries — all delightful for kids of any age (but aimed at the 3-7 year-old set).

Enjoy stories from Denmark’s Hans Christian Anderson, Sweden’s Astrid Lindgren (of Pippi Longstocking fame), and Elsa Beskow (whose early 1900’s-era books are still loved by children today).

Laugh along as the Tomtes journey to get their Christmas porridge, be charmed by a journey to a land of long ago, learn about troubles brewed by witch Queen Louhi’s mischievous ways. Delight in the capers of Findus the cat, who always manages to make life more difficult, and yet more full of love and joy, for poor old Pettson. These Nordic characters will charm their way into your and your children’s hearts and live there forever!


Join us to explore the worlds of winter, the holidays and magical creatures.


We will read every Tuesday morning from 10:00 am-11:00 am leading up to this year’s Christmas Revels. It’s open-house style, come whenever you like and stay as long as you like! Email Liesl Chapin at with any questions.
